Notes
Bolig vol. 2 notes of Vi 74187 and Vi 6320: "Some copies erroneously marked as take 5." Moran notes that copies marked take 5 are likely to be early, unmarked examples of S/8 (dubbed) recordings.
Takes 1 through 3 are noted in Victor ledgers with the prefix "CC." EDVR notes that the double prefix (CC-) indicates use of a finer-threaded lathe, thus more grooves per inch and a longer-playing record.
